Armchair LC3 by Le Corbusier: Comfort for Everyone

The models of armchair LC3 by Le Corbusier represent a real milestone in the seats design: these models of armchair were projected and realized by the Swiss architect and designer in 1928. These model of armchair were presented to public in 1929 at the Salon d’Automne in Paris, with a complete series of chair, couch and chaise lounge with various styles and dimensions.

But the models of armchair LC3 by Le Corbusier are really important and interesting  because are the practice realization of a revolutionary concept of Le Corbusier for the architecture and the furniture design: and all of this with an absolutely unique design and the using of new materials, not the typical ones that were used in the classical furniture.
Swiss-born Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, best known by his adopted name Le Corbusier, was a highly influential architect, designer, painter, urban planner and writer whose career spanned almost five decades.

A pioneer of progress-minded modern architecture, Le Corbusier sought to impose a rational order on the chaos of the world through design. He rejected the excessive architectural ornament and developed a style that became known as Brutalism, creating buildings with elemental geometric forms that were made of industrial materials such as steel and reinforced concrete. Le Corbusier believed that pure, well-designed spaces could offer a lesson in how little is needed to achieve happiness.

To convey this notion, the architect prioritized modern, open interiors and emphasized light, rational designs. His architecture and interiors share a clear sense of space and structural order, underlining the beauty in harmony, proportion and simplicity.Le Corbusier’s furniture espouses these same ideals. His designs are spare, minimal and efficient but at the same time offer supreme comfort. Collaborating with his cousin, Pierre Jeanneret, and designer Charlotte Perriand, he devised such iconic pieces as the LC2 Le Grand Confort armchair and the LC4 chaise longue.

Each couples a tubular chrome frame with soft, supple leather upholstery, lending an organic warmth to an industrially made design. In his furniture, Le Corbusier broke new ground in ergonomics. The shape of the LC4 chaise is taken directly from the human form; the classic cowhide upholstery makes the sitter feel weightless; and the piece features an adjustable positioning mechanism to promote total relaxation.

The models of armchair LC3 by Le Corbusier are new not only for the materials and for the style, but also for the depth study that the Swiss designer reserved for these models of armchair (and all the seats model that belong to the “Gran Comfort” series). Indeed Le Corbusier studied with great attention the human anatomy and arrived to know that the different body conformation typical of men and women takes the necessity to have seats suitable for these two physical reality.

Because of this motive the models of armchair LC3 by Le Corbusier are divided in two models: the “Petite Modele” for the male body and the “Grand Modele” for the female body.
If you choose one of the models of the armchair LC3 by Le Corbusier you will surely find the seat comfortable for your body.
